Hinges For OO Engine Shed

Gary asks:

“How do I fit the hinges to a ratio 522 engine shed so the doors will open and shut? If anyone has done it close-up pictures of the hinges would be good so I have a visual of how it has been done. Thanks for any replies.”

    Can you add clear pictures of the doors and shed ? Then we can figure out a solution.

    Off the cuff, I will suggest making fine brass wire hinges set into fine holes drilled into the edge of the doors and into tiny slabs of plastic on the wall.

    If you are very skilful, make the hinges from fine brass or copper sheet, with wire hinge pins.

    See the relevant video on Youtube from Marklin of Sweden. The guy fixed up some swinging doors on a (i think) Heljan engine shed that worked well.
